  2. 2. What is a prostate?<br />The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive system. It is shaped like a walnut and is about 1.2 inches across. One of its functions is to make part of semen, the fluid produced during ejaculation. This fluid also keeps sperm healthy for fertilization. <br />Hormones also keep the sperm healthy.<br />Without it there is no reproduction. As men get older the hormone levels change and get lower. <br />
